Wisconsin Road Test Program to end Dec 2023

At the onset of Covid, Wisconsin began to waive road testing for those under the age of 18 to receive their driver's license.

This caught me off guard until I read further, and discovered that those who could sign the waiver had also taken a driving course with a professional instructor. So in essence, someone monitored their driving abilities. That sounds a lot safer than saying all permit owners under the age of 18 could have their parents sign the waiver and avoid the driving test.

When I first read what you said, I was confused too haha! So what I'm seeing here, is that they won't need the probationary period of having to drive with an adult for a certain amount of time before they get their driver's license? So they skip that part and go right to the driving instructor?
